Our community owned and community focused preschool is looking for a Supervisor.

We choose to keep a small role of 26 tamariki aged from 18-months until the transition to primary school. We have a permanent and fully qualified teaching team, and maintain a high kaiako to tamariki ratio.

The supervisor role is permanent and full-time. The core hours are 7.45am to 4.15pm, but there must also be flexibility to meet the requirements of the day.

The supervisor is responsible for managing the operation of all aspects of the Preschool while maintaining teaching and mentoring commitments. It can be a busy role and the supervisor needs to be able to take responsibility and make decisions. We also employ a part-time, experienced finance administrator.

The right candidate will have experience working in a leadership position, or be a senior ECE teacher. We are looking for proven ability and experience in early childhood education, particularly in an environment of creative and self-directed play, and strong partnerships with families.

Essential in this role are excellent communication skills and a warm, calm and welcoming manner. The successful applicant will be able to build and maintain effective relationships with our community (kaiako, whānau, Management Committee, local schools) and with our external stakeholders (such as MoE, Teaching Council and ERO).

Northland Community Preschool is part of the ECE collective agreement. Find out more about us on our website:
